The comments on this post clearly demarcate how some people are so painfully judgmental of those who don't follow the absurd fashion flow. He's not wearing fur, where are his polished leather shoes, no way can he be Italian, he must be a junky.
I think this real look is absolutely beautiful, & if he has grandkids, they will think he's badass for his gauges!
What I love most in a photo like this is the total absence of labels and the presence of beauty and language through style. Don't get me wrong. I love some great labels stuff I have but what I love most is your choice to see beauty around you. I personally need it in this crazy world we live! Thank you for that!
Love the rings and his expression… and that perfect profile.
The angel wings created by the shadow are the perfect touch, especially since, judging by some of the comments, many would never consider that by being kind to those who seems "strange" to them, they may be entertaining angels (literal or metaphorical–take your pick) unaware.
There's certainly a theme of smokers enjoying their outside break in this blog since smokers cannot light up inside anymore at least in public buildings. I like how this guy seems to be oblivious to the photog in this shot. just relaxing and smoking.
If I'm not mistaken, this is Gienchi, a very cool shoe designer from Italy. If you thik he doesn't look Italian, then you probaly have never been to Italy. There's a little bit of everything there, and a lot of young people I've seen tend to look like this. In fact, I'd be willing to bet that the same holds true for any big city around the globe nowadays. As for the pic – he looks HOT and very stylish. I'd take this over shiny shoes and suits any day!
Wow… some remarkably judgmental comments here! Thank god Scott's not so prissy, so we get to see photos of perfectly normal young people (not junkies, freaks, or down on their luck, just NORMAL!). I agree with others commenters that the beauty of this shot is in his shadow. His attire is completely typical for a casual, layered look on a young person. I have lived all over the U.S. and in Europe, and people who don't think this is perfectly acceptable attire simply don't open their eyes. Some of you would think anyone was a bum! Ugh.
